On Saturday I cleaned the house while he worked and then we went back for game number two courtesy of some tickets in the suite that hubby's boss gave us. Yesterday I ran a few errands and finished up the Mojo Monday card in enough time to get it posted to the challenge but not up on the blog because my parents came over for Sunday night dinner. I love that.
I had eagerly purchased the Simon Says Stamp Stamptember exclusive Tim Holtz blueprints stamps. These are the first Tim Holtz blueprint stamps I've bought. I've looked at them several times and put them on wishlists, but I've never actually picked any up until now. But these ones were too good to miss (if you are thinking about them yourself, hurry over to Simon Says Stamp - they are a limited release for Stamptember only so there's only few days left, that is, if they aren't sold out already).
I stamped the image in Archival Ink in Jet Black, then watercolored it with my Distress Ink Markers. I was just playing with the stamps, but then I saw the Mojo Monday #363 sketch and I knew it was perfect for that. The paper comes from the Lost and Found 2 6x6 paper pad from My Mind's Eye. That paper pad is perfect for a masculine card. I finished it off with some ribbon and a button threaded with crochet thread, all from my stash.
I've entered this card over at Mojo Monday in challenge number 363. That challenge is now closed, but there's a new one every Monday so check it out if you are looking for some inspiration and fun.
